fundraising dinner Mike McDonald (left) and Irvin Penner welcomed the opportunity to share food and stories of hope at the YUGO Ministries fundraising supper at the Brian King Centre in Warman on Friday, April 25. Perogies and cream gravy, sausage and desserts were enjoyed by the nearly 150 in attendance. Irvin Penner, originally from Dalmeny but now serving full time in Mexico with YUGO Ministries, shared some of the challenges and the triumphs of his missionary work. His daugh-

ter Leah Penner and his co-worker Mike McDonald shared their stories of how their missionary work in and near Tijuana, Mexico is feeding the hungry, visiting those in prison, building homes for the needy, and training pastors to lead their own congregations. Those in attendance were generous in their support of this work, both in finances and in prayer. For those who missed the opportunity, donations can be forwarded to YUGO Ministries, PO Box 231, St Albert, AB T8N 1N3. (Photo submitted by Barb Sharp)

Money in coat pocket returned after thrift store donation By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Staff at a Saskatoon thrift store were shocked to discover an envelope full of a “substantial” amount of cash in the pocket of a donated coat. But the elderly gentleman who donated the coat, along with the rest of his late wife’s clothing to the store, was even more shocked to have it all returned to him the same day. Marcel Janzen, Manager of the Worldserve Thrift Store on Circle Drive in Saskatoon, said he’s happy the store was able to bring a ray of sunshine into the elderly man’s life. “He lost his wife two years ago,” said Janzen. “And he saw an article about our store recently and decided that because it was a Christian ministry that operated it, that it would make good use of her

clothing.” Janzen said the store staff picked up the donated clothing from the man’s house on Wednesday, April 30. “All the clothing was in his late wife’s room,” said Janzen. “None of the items had been touched for two years. It was all still on hangers. We put it all in our van and took it back to the store.” As a matter of course, the staff went through the pockets of the clothing to check for bits of paper, gum and other items. “Our assistant manager came across a windbreaker that had a package in one of the pockets,” said Janzen. “She was very surprised to find a large sum of money in the package. Since we knew where it came from, we immediately called the donor and

told him about it, although we didn’t say exactly how much there was.” When the elderly man came down to the store, he was flabbergasted to learn how big the sum actually was. Janzen doesn’t want the amount disclosed to the public, but did say the cash was counted out in several “crisp one-hundred dollar bills.” The envelope had apparently been in the pocket since 2009, and the elderly man had no idea where it came from or why it would be there. “But he was overjoyed to have it returned to him,” said Janzen. “He’s having a difficult time financially. He’s getting up in years and he should be retired. He works part-time trying to make ends meet, so this is almost heaven-sent.”

Dazzling Divas gear up for Relay for Life event Submitted by

JOAN STECKLER and LYNN REMESHYLO

The group ‘the Dazzling Divas’ are participating in their 6th Relay for Life at Saskatoon’s Diefenbaker Park on Friday, June 13. This event raises funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. All money raised goes towards creating a world where no Canadian fears cancer. The Cancer Society is relentless in the areas of research, support, prevention and advocacy. The relay begins with the Survivors walk at 7 pm, where Cancer survivors, those fighting the disease and their caregivers are honored. The teams then spend the next 12 hours walking the track and taking part in a number of other activities planned for the night. Every participant is there to celebrate the survivors, remember those that lost their fight and support those who continue to fight back. The Canadian Cancer Society has roots in Saskatchewan that started well over 70 years ago and has a long national history in making a real difference in the fight against cancer. No other cancer organi-

zation has offices in communities across Saskatchewan, a volunteer base of thousands, the credibility that comes from positions based on solid research and the Society’s ability to shape public debate about cancer. The Divas are a group of 10 very committed women from Dalmeny, Martensville and Warman, who are proud to be part of this event. They raise funds through pledges and a couple of fundraising events. Their first event this year was a very successful steak night held at The Legends in Warman. The second event is their annual Garage/food Sale in Dalmeny on Saturday May 10 at 312 Cedar Ave. Come and check out the ‘special treasures’, lots of baking, chili and a bun lunch, and also the fresh homemade donuts. Join the fight for life. Stop by and su0pport our Relay for Life team with you donation to the Canadian Cancer Society. Tax receipts are issued for all donations of $20 or more. Please help us make Cancer history. You can contact the team’s co-captains: Joan Steckler at 306-683-2041 and Lynn Remeshylo at 306-249-3790.

Great, thriving communities to raise your family.

MLA Gordon Wyant was nominated on Sunday, May 4 as the Saskatchewan Party candidate in Saskatoon Northwest for the next provincial election. “I would like to thank my constituents very much for their continued encouragement,” Wyant said. “It is very humbling to have that support and I will work hard to keep it.” Wyant completed his Bachelor of Arts degree with distinction in 1985, and graduated from the College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan in 1986. Shortly after convocation, Wyant began practicing law with the firm McKercher LLP, where he became partner and practiced until 2012. He received his Queen’s Counsel designation in 2009. Since 2000, Wyant has also been an active public servant. He was elected as trustee for the Saskatoon Public School Board in 2000 and served as chair for two years. He was elected city councillor in Saskatoon for Ward 5 in 2003 and was re-elected in 2006 and 2009. Wyant has served the community in numerous roles over the last 25 years with organizations including the Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce, past president of the United Way of Saskatoon and founding director of the Children’s Health Foundation of Saskatchewan. Wyant was elected as the MLA for Saskatoon Northwest in an October 2010 by-election. He was then re-elected in the 2011 provincial election. After the 2011 election, Wyant was CONTINUED ON PAGE 22

Raising the roof Langham students build a home for four families

Railway urged to upgrade drainage capacity on Hwy. 305 By JAMES TARRANT james@ccgazette.ca

By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Students at Langham’s Walter W. Brown High School are helping four families build a future based on home ownership thanks to the “da Vinci Project”, Prairie Spirit School Division’s (PSSD) new approach aimed at providing authentic, real-world learning opportunities. A sod-turning ceremony for the multi-family four-plex project by Habitat For Humanity was held on Friday, May 2 at the site in Saskatoon. The two-storey building contains four separate three bedroom units with each approximately 1,200 square feet in size with fully developed basements. The four-plex, which should should be complete by this fall, is situated one block south of 22nd Street at 119 Avenue S South. The infill residence project also involves Prairie Spirit School Division (PSSD), the City of Saskatoon and the Government of Saskatchewan and will provide affordable housing and help assist in revitalizing one of the city’s core neighbourhoods. For the Grade 10, 11 and 12 students of Walter W. Brown, though, it’s also an exciting educational project designed to teach practical, hands-on skills and will prepare them for life after high school as well as give them the taste of a possible career choice following graduation. “This project is the first partnership we’ve had with Prairie Spirit School Division,” said Habitat For Humanity CEO Barb Cox-Lloyd at the ceremony. “We’re really excited to start construction of this fourunit home. Since the beginning of September 2013, these students have been working on building four modules that will be transported to this site and placed on a foundation. “Their work and determina-

Madison Sage, Leah Daum, Tyler Badham, Kristin Wall, Christian Zacharias and Rachel Neufeld were among the students who took part in the ceremony tion to complete this build will result in four families having the opportunity to have some ownership.” PSSD Board Chair Larry Pavloff said the 16 students in the construction program at the school put in countless hours building the four modules over the winter on the school’s property. “These kids know what it’s like to work outside in minus 20 degree cold,” said Pavloff. “They’re used to working outside and they know how to dress for the weather.” He noted other students at the school are also involved in the project. The Industrial Arts 30 class is building the kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities for these units. Grade 7 and 8 students are building garden sheds, birdhouses and dog houses from scrap material from the four-plex build. These products wil either be sold at the Habitat For Humanity ReStore outlet or

gifted to the new homeowners. So, we’re getting everyone in the school involved. “Our students are highly engaged and are demonstrating leadership and teamwork,” Pavloff explained. “Everyone is very proud of the quality of work (the students) are producing. They start with nothing and when they see what they can accomplish, it makes them feel real proud.” School principal Michael Neufeld said the four modules will be moved into Saskatoon once the foundation is ready, likely by mid-June. He added the modules are already framed with wiring, plumbing and HVAC systems in the final stages. Insulating and drywalling will also be done in the next few weeks. The four modules make up the main floor while the second storey and basement levels will be built on-site in Saskatoon. Students will travel from Langham periodically to

help the Habitat For Humanity crews with that work. Neufeld said the this project marks the beginning of more partnership efforts between the school and Habitat For Humanity. “We have a long-term contract with Habitat For Humanity and we will continue to do this as long as we can into the future,” he stated. “It’s very exciting.” Doug Tarasoff, a journeyman carpenter and retired teacher with PSSD, has been overseeing the project at the school. He said the students have been enthusiastic and willing to learn new skills. “I can’t say enough good things about these kids. They’re a great group.” According to Tarasoff, the first lesson the students learn in the program is how to work safely. CONTINUED ON PAGE 24

Province adds more funding

The Saskatchewan Water Security Agency (SWSA) is recommending the Canadian National Railway (CNR) upgrade its infrastructure through its rail line upstream of Highway 305. According to RM of Corman Park council documents, the SWSA sent a letter regarding drainage control regulations and natural water flow to the CNR determining that the rail line is the controlling point and is limiting the natural flow of water. The SWSA has been working with the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure following consecutive years of flooding to improve culvert capacities and manage natural flows. In 2013, the SWSA requested the highways ministry to upgrade its infrastructure because one 600 mm culvert was not managing natural flows and, as a result, water backed up into rural residents yard sites to the north and then spilled east into the City of

Warman. As a result, the highways ministry added two 600mm culverts under the old Highway 305 to equalize levels on each side of the highway. However, flows are still restricted at the CN rail line. At the April 22 RM of Corman Park council meeting a letter between the CNR and SWSA was accepted as information, but some councillors were not shy about expressing their happiness about SWSA’s request. Division 6 Councillor Bas Frose-Kooijenga said SWSA’s request was welcome news and that it was about time that this issue was addressed with CNR. Over the years, the RM of Corman Park, Town of Osler, City of Martensville and the City of Warman have jointly written the CNR regarding its infrastructure downstream of Highway 305. The SWSA has requested that the CNR upgrade its infrastructure through its rail line at this location to equal or exceed the capacity immediately upstream under Highway 305.

Three men arrested after chase in Asquith Three men are facing firearms-related charges following a high-speed chase in Asquith on Tuesday, April 29. The men, ranging in age from 19 to 22, were slated to appear in provincial court in Saskatoon on Wednesday, April 30. On Tuesday, April 29, members of the Saskatoon Integrated Drug Enforcement Street Team (SIDEST) received information that a man was in possession of firearms and was believed to be in Asquith.

(ERT) of the Saskatoon Police Service, members attempted to conduct a vehicle stop east of Asquith on Highway 14. When ERT members activated their emergency equipment, the vehicle attempted to evade police and a short pursuit through Asquith ensued before the vehicle became stuck and the driver and two passengers fled on foot. All three were apprehended and arrested a short distance later. A subsequent search of the vehicle located a loaded rifle, brass knuckles, ammunition and a knife.

Junior boot camp seeks to draw youth toward careers in firefighting By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

About a dozen Dalmeny high school students will be suiting up to learn what it takes to be a firefighter and first responder later this month. A two-day “junior boot camp” for Grades 10 through 12 students is slated for the Dalmeny Fire Hall May 28 and 29. Over the course of the camp, the youth will get hands-on training in all the tools of the firefighters trade, including fire hoses, ropes, fire extinguishers, first aid equipment and breathing apparatus. It’s an innovative program aimed at introducing young people to the challenges and rewards of a volunteer firefighters’ life, according to Dalmeny Firefighter Ed Finch, one of the organizers of the junior boot camp. “It’s the first time we’ve done something like this, and we’re pretty excited about it,” said Finch in an interview at the Dalmeny Fire and Rescue annual fundraising pancake breakfast on Saturday, May 3. “It’s a real hands-on experience in all aspects of what a firefighter and first responder does.” Finch said the goal of the program is to encourage youth to consider a career in firefighting after they graduate from high school. That could mean a full-time career, or it could mean serving as a part-time volunteer professional firefighter in a rural community. “Almost every community across the province has seen

a decline in the number of volunteers stepping forward to fill the ranks of the fire departments and first responders,” said Finch. “So if we can get them fresh out of school, and if they continue to live in our community, they’ll be more interested in joining because they’ll know what it’s all about. “They’ll have had a taste of the adventure, and hopefully they’ll want to give something back to the community where they grew up.” The firefighters will be making their pitch to the students in the coming weeks through presentations at Dalmeny High School. Students can apply to

Dalmeny Fire and Rescue members Thomas and Mary Baxter are the proud parents of nine-day-old baby girl Olive Baxter. Thomas Baxter has been a member of the department for 10 years, and Mary has been a member for five years. They are one of several married couples who are dedicated members of the community’s fire and rescue team.

Music teacher uses innovative methods to help students develop passion for music By JAMES TARRANT james@ccgazette.ca

As a music education teacher, Monika Mackenzie is not shy about expressing her love of music, but she is also an advocate in helping students understand what opportunities are available through the ancient art form. This semester makes it 15 years that Mackenzie taught music at Clavet High School. Mackenzie was responsible for reintroducing music to the school in 1999, when it was part of the Saskatoon East School Division. As a band director for the Prairie Spirit School Division (East) Mackenzie teaches music to 200 students enrolled in the band program in several com-

munities including Aberdeen, Allan, Clavet, Colonsay, Dundurn, Hanley and South Corman Park. Growing up in Vancouver, Mackenzie knew early on that music would play a important in her life. She started playing piano at an early age and was involved with music programs where it was instrumental, choral or musical theatre. Mackenzie never truly appreciated the impact music played in the world until she joined a community marching band when she was a teenager. The touring and marching concert band took Mackenzie to prestigious events including the Tournament of Roses and Rose Bowl Parade in California. She also performed with

the group for Queen Elizabeth, Princess Diana, Pope John Paul II, the World Fair Expo in Vancouver in 1986 and BC Lions football games. In 2010 her concert band received an invite to the National Music Festival. Although Mackenzie has a structured music program at schools she teaches where students learn on traditional concert band instruments and classical repertoire based on the PSSD’s curriculum. She also thinks it is important for students find their own voice through music no matter what genre that may be. Mackenzie has put together an extra curricular “rock band” style program this

Krawetz changed the face of rural politics

Dangerous work

Change does not come easy for politicians; nor does it come easy for the people that elected them.

By WES PAYNE and TROY WINTERS

Canadian Union of Public Employees - www.cupe.ca

Thirty years after the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) national health and safety committee first proposed the Day of Mourning, workers are seeing some significant setbacks. The most blatant assault is happening in the federal sector. A recently-passed piece of legislation by the Harper government; omnibus budget Bill C-4; reduced workers’ protections and changed the definition of danger to make refusing dangerous work confusing for workers. CUPE has heard reports of employers telling workers that they no longer have the right to refuse as a result of the new legislation. This is both factually wrong and dangerous. All workers, regardless of their jurisdiction, still have the right to refuse dangerous work. Among other changes, the words “imminent or serious threat” were added to the definition of danger, which implies that workers are not entitled to protection from hazards that could cause them illness in the future. It is still unclear whether the new definition of danger will lead to a modified interpretation of the right to refuse by health and safety inspectors or the Minister of Labour. The government maintains that this new definition does not reduce worker’s rights, but some employers are obviously interpreting the changes to the legislation differently. Regardless of the finer points of legal interpretation, the law still allows workers to refuse dangerous work. Workers ought to remember one simple standard to assess a potentially dangerous situation: if you don’t feel safe performing a task, you should not perform it until your concerns have been addressed. “We’re just appalled that the Harper government finds it acceptable to create confusion around something as basic as workplace health and safety,” said CUPE National President Paul Moist. “There is absolutely no good reason to impose these changes. And for us to receive these reports as we mark the 30th anniversary of the Day of Mourning just adds insult to injury.” It was CUPE’s National Health and Safety Committee that, in 1984, first proposed the Day of Mourning. Since then, on April 28, CUPE members and workers around the world pause to remember those that have been injured, made ill, or killed because they went to work. Every year, CUPE locals and divisions organize memorial events across the country to honour those workers and to strengthen their resolve to fight for the living. In 2012, the most recent figures available, there were 977 reported workplace related deaths in Canada. This number only represents those accepted by various workers compensation boards across the nation and generally do not reflect many illnesses contracted as a result of workplace exposure to hazardous materials. The real number is certainly much higher.

MURRAY MANDRYK

COMMENTARY

Provincial Politics

To retire from politics is never an easy decision. Dedicating one’s best years to the fishbowl world of public service requires a special resolve and commitment. It’s not easy to walk away from that. But change does not necessarily come easy for voters, either, who have to trust that the person they elect will truly be an effective, honest, hard-working representative in sync with their needs and views. Many rural voters are now losing those effective voices. Consider the solid representation Melville-Saltcoats voters have received from former agriculture minister Bob Bjornerud, who will retire after the next general election. Similarly, Wood River voters will lose Yogi Huyghebaert. And Melfort voters lost former finance minister Rod Gantefoer to retirement after the 2011 election. Now, Canora-Pelly voters

will face the same dilemma as current Finance and Deputy Premier Ken Krawetz, the only MLA this 19-year-old riding has ever had, has announced his retirement. However, the significance of Krawetz’s departure after the next election; likely to be held in April 2016; actually goes beyond the loss of one influential MLA in one particular seat. Krawetz’s political career has very much represented the transformation of Saskatchewan politics, especially in rural Saskatchewan. First elected in 1995 as a Liberal MLA by a meagre 66 votes, Krawetz’s initial entry into the legislature represented a major transition. Liberals, especially rural Liberals, had become all but extinct in this province. In fact, the division for the two decades prior was very clear, with the Progressive Conservatives dominating most rural regions and the NDP dominating most of the urban seats. But with the incompetence and debt that accompanied the Grant Devine government prior to the 1991 election and with former PC MLA fraud trials in the news going into the 1995 election, voters were clearly looking for something different. Yet, while trust in the PCs bottomed out, rural voters

were equally untrusting of the NDP government that closed 52 rural hospitals in 1993. Notwithstanding his candidacy in a seat in the middle of what was once known as “red square;” the last NDP bastion in rural Saskatchewan consisting of the seats around Yorkton; Krawetz’s win in Canora-Pelly represented a major change. That Canora-Pelly voters were willing to take a chance on the former educator and businessman as a Liberal said much. But that they would be more than willing to forgive him for leaving the Liberal ranks and joining Progressive Conservatives to form the Saskatchewan Party just two years later said even more. After two years of upheaval under leaders Lynda Haverstock and Jim Melenchuk, it became obvious that divided opposition ranks would never unseat the still-powerful NDP. So along with Kelvington-Wadena’s June Draude, Gantefoer and Bjornerud, Krawetz joined PC MLAs Bill Boyd, Dan D’Autremont, Don Toth and Ben Heppner to form the Sask. Party in August 1997. In fact, Krawetz became the interim opposition leader, realizing a dream of leading a political party that had eluded him a year earlier when he lost to Me-

lenchuk for the Liberal leadership. To suggest it was a huge gamble for Krawetz to jump ship from the party in which voters elected him is a huge understatement. But Canora-Pelly voters understood his reasoning and shared his vision, rewarding him with a 2,000-plus vote win in 1999. Voters also re-elected him in 2003 and in 2007 when the Sask. Party was rewarded with government. Krawetz became education minister and Deputy Leader. He was further rewarded with another re-election in 2011 and the finance portfolio. Canora-Pelly voters are losing more than a solid, effective representative. They are losing someone who, in many ways, has changed the face of Saskatchewan’s politics.

Internet hot spots have no purpose in Canada’s national parks One of the special memories I remember as a kid was camping. There was nothing like standing around a camp fire watching my marshmallow catch on fire, seeing how far I could skip rocks on the lake or race my bike on some dirt roads with my cousins and friends to see who could make the longest skid mark in the dirt. I plan on taking my kids camping this summer, I haven’t decided where yet, but it’s going to be somewhere where we can wake to morning birds, or teach my kids about things about nature or just talk in general.

Talking to each other seems to be a method of communication that is becoming a foreign concept in the world of the iPhone or smart phones. I know smart phones are addictive and I admit I too have to learn to put the phone away sometimes. We live in a generation of total convenience. Today you

can send an email, check out NHL games on a sport app and read a novel all in the time it takes to bat an eye. Maybe not that fast, but my point is: do we need wireless access in places that were established to get away from our technological conveniences? Not according to the federal government. It was recently announced that Parks Canada is requesting tenders from contractors to install internet access points at 150 locations. Do we really need this? I understand that Parks Canada has more than just camp groups under their port-

It was a restricted zone, a no mans land, but now when it comes to telling ghost stories around an open fire everyone will turn into thumb flaying zombies where LED lights will light up the camp sites instead of firelight. Now the federal bureaucrats try to say that visitors want better wi-fi to be able to stay in touch with work, friends and family, stay up to date on the news and connect with social media, which

begs the question. Why do you need to surf the web while camping? It makes no sense to me. Parks Canada has admitted it expects to offer the service free of charge in some locations, but it will charge a fee in some cases, such as where the cost is excessive or the location particularly remote. What this really means is that they are going to do a trial run in these free locations and if it is popular it will result in an extra fee Parks Canada can charge for campsites across the board. The government is not going to invest in something

and not get a return. That’s just silly. But let’s call it what it is. Going camping to me always meant leaving the TV, computer, iPhones and gaming systems behind in favour of important things like family bonding time. It’s kind of like what families are forced to do when the power goes out. For some strange reason we tend to find out things about ourselves that we never knew. Antisocial interaction is a inconvenient truth about technology. Do we really want to promote that in our national parks?

Martensville Business Expo highlights commercial sector growth

A two-day trade fair in Martensville last weekend highlighted the growing number of commercial businesses in the city and the region. Martensville Economic Development Officer Dillon Shewchuk said the event saw a larger number of businesses participate this year, and the response from the public was also encouraging. “So far the turnout has been good,” said Shewchuk in an interview at the Business Expo during the morning of Saturday, May 3. “We had a fair number of people out on Friday evening, and I expect things to get busier in the afternoon.” He noted that while there has been some turnover in the businesses at the exhibit, almost all the exhibitors from previous years were back again. Shewchuk said the event offfered a number of children’s activities in an effort to attract more families. Entertainment for the younger set was provided by Beeper the Clown.

You can never be over-prepared for an emergency, says Dean Brooman, Deputy Fire Chief with the Martensville Fire Department. In an interview on Saturday, May 3 just prior to the kickoff of Emergency Preparedness Week May 4-10, Brooman said a simple emergency kit containing a family’s basic necessities should be put together ahead of time and kept in an accessible place in the home. The kit should contain a supply of water, food, basic first aid materials, identification, cash, batteries, radio and other supplies. A full list of recommended contents are posted online by the federal government at www.getprepared.gc.ca . “Everyone should have a basic kit,” said Brooman. “The idea is that when a disaster hits, you should be able to cope for about 72 hours. It takes some time for emergency response protocols to kick in, and the first few hours are critical in any emergency.” Brooman said the prairies exprience severe storms in both winter and summer. “We’ve seen things like tornadoes, plow winds, blizzards and so on that have real-

ly caused a lot of damage,” he said. “Emergency Preparedness Week is a time when we can focus attention on the issue, but really, you should be aware of the need to be prepared all year long.” Brooman said it’s importan to have a communication plan to be able to contact family members in the event of an emergency. “You should talk about this ahead of time, and have a designated place where everyone can meet,” he said. “This is the same idea in the event of a fire in your home.” Brooman said people need to be aware of the location of the shut-off valves for electrical, water and other utilities in the home. He also recommended people have an updated emergency kit in their vehicle. “You never know where you could be when something occurs,” he said. “You could be on vacation at the lake when an unexpected situation happens.” The Canadian Red Cross says disasters are more common than most people think. In 2013, the agency helepd more than 91,000 people in response to 2,800 emergencies; an average of almost eight emergencies every day. In Saskatchewan, 2,355 people received Red Cross assistance.

Martensville Fire Dep’t boosts capacity with new pumper truck By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A new $400,000 pumper truck capable of utilizing a compressed air foam system (CAFS) will boost the Martensville Fire Department’s capacity to respond to emergencies in the rapidly-growing community and region. Martensville Fire Chief Kurtis Dyck said the new truck, which was delivered from the Manitoba-based manufacturer on Friday, May 2, was custombuilt for the department. “The main advantage of this truck is it uses a much more efficient system for fighting fires,” said Dyck. “Utilizing compressed air foam takes a lot less water to extinguish a fire than if you just use straight water alone.” Dyck said the new pumper also ensures the community is protected if their existing pumper, a five-year old vehicle, is out of service for maintenance or any other reason. “The only backup we had was an old 1989-model pumper truck that really didn’t meet modern firefighting standards,” said Dyck. “It really wasn’t reliable enough to be used on its own as a frontline vehicle. It’s

still useful, and we’ll be keeping it in service, but it’s strictly a backup.” The new Top Mount Enclosed (TME) vehicle is capable of carrying five firefighters to a scene. The cab of the truck is loaded with sophisticated controls capable of operating a wide array of firefighting equipment on the outside of the truck. A single operator can control numerous functions from inside the vehicle. “It’s pretty amazing,” said Dyck. “We’re all being trained on it now so that regardless of who is on a call, they’ll be capable and confident when they are called upon to use this machine.” With the addition of the new pumper truck, the City of Martensville will have invested close to $1 million in the fire department’s fleet over the last five years, according to Dyck. The new vehicles include the two pumper trucks, a grassfirefighting truck and a tender vehicle. The city has also added on an additional bay to the fire hall. “These are big expenses, but given the growth of the city, and the region, it’s something that had to be done,” said Dyck.

EMO Coordinator suggests: Get your kit together before emergency hits Submitted by

TRACY WILSON-GERWING Martensville EMO Coordinator

Emergency Preparedness Week is a national awareness initiative. This year’s Emergency Preparedness Week theme is: “72 Hours: Is your family prepared?” In conjunction with Emergency Preparedness Week, the City of Martensville’s Emergency Measures Organization (EMO) is pleased to launch its web pages at www.martensville.ca. Located under the “Emergency and Protective Services” tab, the new pages describe the responsibilities and aims of the EMO. In addition, pages can be found to help the public prepare themselves in case of an emergency. As the “72 Hours” theme implies, if an emergency situation should arise, individuals need be prepared to be self-sufficient for 72 hours without power or tap water. The first step to being prepared is knowing what types of emergencies are possible in the area. The second step is to make an emergency plan for your household. The third step is to have an emergency kit with enough supplies to last

A home-prepared emergency kit is essential for dealing with crisis situations (Photo submitted) for 72 hours while emergency workers aid those in urgent need of help. It all sounds pretty straight forward, but while many people recognize the need for an emergency plan and a 72 hour emergency kit, only about 40% of Canadians have bought or built an emergency kit (www.getprepared.gc.ca). If we look around our homes, many of us have the basic items we need for an emergency kit.

The problem is that if we are forced to leave our homes in a hurry, there really isn’t time to run around and find all of the items we need.

include canned food in your kit • Flashlight – wind up or battery operated • Radio – wind up or battery operated • Extra batteries – if you chose battery operated flashlight and/or radio • First aid kit • Extra keys for your house and vehicle(s) • Cash – small bills ($5 and $10) • Emergency Plan • Special items – medications, infant formula, medical equipment, food and water for pets Once you have a basic kit, it is recommended that you add: • Extra water for cooking and cleaning • Water purifying tablets • Candles and matches • Change of clothing/shoes • Sleeping bag or blanket • Toiletries • Hand Sanitizer • Toilet Paper • Utensils

• Garbage bags • Basic tools • Small fuel-operated stove and fuel • Whistle • Duct Tape Once you have put together your emergency kit, you may consider adding some additional items that are specific to you and/or your family. These could include games or coloring books to entertain children, a solar (or crank) charger for your cell phone, or maybe a deck of cards.

DON’T FORGET THE CAT

If you have pets, they will need additional water. If you are required to leave your home, take your pets with you if at all possible. If you must leave them behind, do not kennel them, ensure they have adequate food and access to water. Place a sign on your door or in your windows to alert rescue workers that there is an animal

in the home. Finally, when communicating during and after an emergency, try to avoid making voice calls and keep them short if you do. Text messages, emails and social media are the best method of communication and may work even when phone service doesn’t. So, are you ready? Do you know what the risks are in Martensville? Have you made an emergency plan? Is your emergency kit stocked and accessible? Have you signed up with the City of Martensville’s Notify Me – Emergency Alert Center? Each person who is signed up for the Notify Me - Emergency Alert Center at www.martensville.ca will be entered into a draw for an Emergency Preparedness Kit. The draw will be made on May 31, 2014. If you have previously signed up, you are already entered.

WHAT’S IN THE KIT?

A basic emergency kit should contain: • Water – 2 litres of water per person per day • Food – canned food, dried foods, protein bars • Manual can opener – if you

For the last five decades, the Warman Fire Department (WFD) has been on call, responding to fires, accidents and other emergencies in Warman and neighbouring communities. As a way of recognizing the contribution of the hundreds of volunteers who have been part of the organization since it began in 1964, the department is gearing up for a special celebration this fall, according to Warman Deputy Fire Chief Russ Austin. “We have had a lot of committed members over the last fifty years,” said Austin in an interview on Wednesday, April 30. “It’s a good opportunity to say thank you to all of them. Some served for only a few months, but others have been with the department for decades. Right now we have four active members with over 20 years of service.” Austin said the department is organizing a formal “Firemen’s Ball” for Saturday, September 13 at the Brian King Centre in Warman. The occasion will feature full dress uniforms for members of the fire and protective services community, including EMS, military and correctional services. Residents will also be invited to attend the event by purchasing tickets. Another informal “family reunion” gathering will be held sometime this summer for current and former Warman Fire Department members. “In the fire and rescue service, it’s a very close-knit community,” said Austin. “Once you’ve served in it, you’re part of a family.” In the lead-up to the fiftieth anniversary celebration, the WFD opened the doors of its fire hall last Saturday to res-

idents of Warman and area by offering a free pancake breakfast and demonstrations of the tools and techniques used by the department in dealing with various types of emergencies. People were able to use a fire extinguisher to douse a real fire through a simulator provided by Trinity Safety, view how a vehicle extrication operation was done using the Jaws of Life, and see the interior of the fire trucks in the hall. New firefighters from North Corman Park communities hired in the fall of 2013 are gearing up to take their final tests this weekend for their NFPA 1001 certification as professional firefighters. Austin said a live burn will take place on Saturday May 10 at the north end of Warman, where an old house and barn need to be removed at the new intersection of Centennial Drive and the new Highway 305. The recruits, each accompanied by an instructor and a rapidintervention team, will be split up into different areas, with each performing a different operation such as search and rescue in a smoke-filled building, supplying water, knocking down a fire from the exterior of a building and attacking a fire on the inside. Small controlled fires will be used while the teams undergo their exercises. At the conclusion, the fire will be allowed to grow and consume the buildings while firefighters focus on preventing the fire from spreading to neighbouring buildings. “It’s a very involved process,” said Austin. “We want to make as much of this opportunity as possible. It’s not just a matter of lighting a match and burning down a building. There’s zero training value in that.” The Warman and Martensville Fire Departments are jointly developing a new dedicated training ground midway between the two cities in the RM of Corman Park on land jointly owned by the Cities of Warman and Martensville. Austin said the land on one parcel has been levelled and a dugout is in place to provide a source of water for a hydrant. Eventually permanent structures will be built for firefighter training at the site. He is hopeful the first class of recruits will start training there later this summer or early fall. A portion of the land the training ground is situated on is not suitable for residential or commercial development because of contamination of the soil. “This particular site was a garbage dump in the 1960s for Martensville, Warman and Dalmeny,” said Austin. “So this training site is a very good use for the land.” TERRY PUGH | CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE

Martensville Library closing for two weeks If you need to borrow a book from the Martensville Library, you should check it out in the next couple of weeks. The Martensville branch of the Wheatland Regional Library will be closed for renovations from Saturday, May 17 to Sunday, June 1, inclusive. The library is scheduled to return to its regular hours on Monday, June 2. The book drop will remain open for items to be returned during the two-week shutdown period. The renovation work involves finishing touches on the former Martensville City Council chambers, which will become part of the library after a dividing wall has been removed. The library will also eventually be taking over the room that currently houses the Martensville Community Access Centre. The Access Centre will relocate in the near future to the former civic planning and recreation offices in the Civic Centre building.

Martensville author wins book award By TERRY PUGH

Martensville author Dianne Young won the SaskEnergy Children’s Literature Award for her book, entitled Dear Flyary, at the 21st annual Saskatchewan Book Awards on Saturday, April 26, in Regina. It was the first time that Young had been nominated for an award, and she said she was surprised and thrilled to win. “When they called my name, my first thought was Yikes! What am I going to say?” said Young. “As I made my way up to the stage to accept the award, I quickly tried to make up something coherent to say. I think I was coherent. I hope I was. I do know I couldn’t stop smiling.” Young’s book was one of three picture books and two novels shortlisted for the SaskEnergy Children’s Literature Award. “I honestly did not expect to win,” she said. “Normally nov-

it. This award really validates my commitment to the story.” Young said she was especially thrilled to have received glowing comments from the jurors, which included Barbara Reid, Evan Munday and Jeremy Tankard. All three are author-illustrators themselves. Young gave credit to illustrator John Martz.

“I’ve split the cash award of $2,000 with him,” she said, noting it was the combination of the writing and the pictures which gave the book its overall merit. The book was chosen as a “Best Bet for 2012” by the Ontario Library Association. Young said the award is very encouraging, but noted she writes for the love of the craft. “I don’t write for recognition, or, heaven knows, for the money,” she said. “Picture book authors generally only get about 5 per cent of the retail price of a book. But an award like this can certainly grease that squeaky inspiration wheel. Hopefully it won’t take another 16 years to get my next book published!” Young’s day job is as a teaching assistant in Saskatoon for youngsters with special needs. Young’s books include: Dear Flyary, Honey Trouble, The Abaleda Voluntary Firehouse Band, A World of Difference, and Purple Hair? I Don’t Care.

Dental office opens in new Martensville strip mall The first tenant of Martensville’s newest commercial strip mall is moving in and set to open this week. Centennial Dental Clinic will be located in the city’s newest commercial strip mall, an 8,500 square foot building located on .81 acres at 729 Centennial Drive South that’s been divided into three separate 2,850 square foot bays. Dillon Shewchuk, City of

Martensville Community & Economic Development Manager says a second dental clinic in the community fits with their vision of increasing the retail and service industry in the city. “We welcome any business that wishes to open up here and take advantage of the benefits the City offers business owners, including the lowest commercial tax rate in the province,” says Shewchuk.

Housing volunteers honoured Elmer Boehr of Warman and Jean Hryniuk of Borden were among 22 Saskatchewan volunteers with more than a quarter-century of dedicated service to their local housing authority who were honoured on Monday, May 5 in Regina. Boehr has served for 35 years, and Hryniuk for 30 years on their respective housing authority committees.

Saskatoon Diocese dealing with priest shortage By JAMES TARRANT james@ccgazette.ca

Is there a shortage of priests to preach in the 96 churches that make up Saskatoon’s Roman Catholic Diocese? In the early 1980s the diocese had priests for all of its 96 parishes, but ten years later the diocese had to assign multiple parishes to a single priest. It was also during this time that the diocese started to look to Asia and other parts of the world to fill the pastoral need, said Leah Perrault, director of Pastoral Services for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon. Today, the diocese has 45 priests for the same amount of churches. Perrault said the decline of people coming forward to make the priesthood their vocation began initially in the early 1960s when Pope John the 23rd and the Second Vatican Council made changes in the orientation of the church and how it serves the world. Changes included switching the mass from being preached in Latin to English. The most damaging element was taking away the superiority role of the priest, meaning the vocation of the priest or religion was not better than a layperson, says Perrault. This change was made so that ordinary people could play a more active role in the church, which Perrault says contributed to a decline in the number of religious vocations. “Some people say this was a huge tragedy. It should never have happened,” said Perrault. “Other people say it weeded out a whole bunch of people who were choosing religious vocations for the wrong reasons.” In the early 1900s North America, experienced its highest rate of vocations. However,

the world was a different place back then, says Perrault. “Many people who came to North America came with religious faith, and early settlers and missionaries had worked hard to establish faith communities,” said Perrault. “For much of church history, belonging to a church made it easier to access education and health care in a particular region,” explained Perrault. “It also meant protection from warlords or a neighbouring village trying to take territory.” Today, governments provide healthcare and education, as well as civil law. People belong to churches largely for spiritual needs and services, and our culture is less inclined towards faith than other generations have been, said Perrault. Perrault said there is not just one reason for the declining number of priests

CELIBACY AND MARRIAGE

Perrault said up until the 15th century priests were allowed to marry. Concern over inheritance laws and priests involved in extramarital scandals resulted in a change of rules toward a celibate priesthood. Today, the only way a Roman Catholic priest can be married is if he is a married Anglican priest first and converts to Catholicism. One innovative ways the diocese is responding to a lower number of priests in the diocese is by using parish life directors. Parish life directors are lay men or women appointed by the Bishop to share canonical and pastoral responsibility for a parish with a priest. “We currently have nine parish life directors and the City of Martensville has had one in the past,” said Perrault.

SEXUAL ABUSE ISSUE

In recent years sexual abuse scandals have also played a role. Perrault said the Roman Catholic Church has apologized when these abuses have occurred, but she doesn’t feel an apology will make a significant impact on vocations. “I think we are going to need to experience significant healing on the abuse crisis across the board, not only sexual but whole person health in our priesthood,” said Perrault. “We are going to have to listen and walk with abuse victims in a meaningful and humble way.” In North America and Europe where people are having smaller families, and if parents want grandchildren, priesthood is often discouraged, said Perrault. Another reason may be that people are just not religious anymore. According to a National Household Survey conducted by Stats Canada in 2013 people identifying as Christians have declined 9.3 per cent, which is a 10 year low. Perrault said the stigma of being a priest in a world that isn’t religious has more of an effect on vocations coming forward than celibacy and sexual abuse scandals. “We only need to look at other mainstream denominations such as Anglican and Lutheran,” said Perrault. “They also have declining numbers. The only difference is in those dominations priests can marry.” The Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon covers an area from Macklin in the northeast to Fox Valley in the southeast corner of the province and east to the Quill Lake-Wynard area. Father Matthew Ramsey, who is originally from Humboldt, but preaches in

LOSE THE WAIT

four Churches in the town of Kerrobert and surrounding communities was ordained as a priest two years ago. Ramsey said the biggest challenge is making Christianity appealing to younger people. “I just want to show them the difference being a Christian makes in their daily life and why it matters to them,” Ramsey. Ramsey, who grew up Roman Catholic, said he never regretted becoming a priest and enjoys his role not only in his churches but also in the communities. Perrault said not all is lost for the Roman Catholic Diocese in Saskatoon. She said numbers are not as high as they were before, but they are slowly coming back. “In 2007 we ordained one local priest and two in 2009 and 2010,” said Perrault. “In the last ten years we have had nine men in formation to be ordained in the priesthood, which when you think we have 45 active ones, it is a pretty high number.

Future career awaits young people to “build confidence, teamwork and leadership through activities.” “We want to educate our participants and their parents on the importance of not only volunteerism, but also in the fact that this is something that could offer a future career,” she said. Tom Moody, a longtime member of the department, said people take it for granted that when they call 911, somebody will come to their aid. “But if you live in a rural ara, the odds are that the people who respond to the call will all be volunteers,” said Moody.

“It takes a lot of commitment and training to fill the roles and responsibilities. This is a first step, and hopefully the kids will accept the challenge.” The Dalmeny Fire and Rescue fundraising breakfast at the Dalmeny Arena drew a large crowd. Finch said the event raises the profile of the department within the community. He said the department is also using social media. Recently a new website (www.dalmenyfireandrescue.com) was launched, and the department is also posting news and information on Facebook and Twitter.

Students hoping to record a video year, which involved five kids from schools in Aberdeen, Hanley, Clavet and Allan playing keyboard, guitars (acoustic & electric), bass guitar, alto saxophone, harmonica, drum set and vocals playing jazz and popular music from artists including the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Adelle and Journey. The group which named themselves Indecisive also experienced the opportunity to record their cover tunes in a recording studio at the University of Saskatchewan.

“What we are doing with this rock band is record their current songs to create an audio file,” explained Mackenzie. Indecisive will also be working with the Clavet Video Club at the school, who hope to record a video on one of the bands chosen songs for an upcoming PSSD film festival in June. Mackenzie said the extracurricular project was a rewarding experience. “They just explore it and I just pass the idea onto them, which i think is important because they

Municipalities to benefit from new program By JAMES TARRANT james@ccgazette.ca

Municipalities will soon have another funding option for upgrading infrastructure. According to RM of Corman Park council documents, the Small Communities Fund was announced recently by the federal government and will include $1 billion of funding for projects in municipalities with a population base of under 100,000 residents. Infrastructure projects considered for approval under the fund include highways and roads, public transit, wastewater and rail. The Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure will be responsible for administering and evaluating applications. Infrastructure project eligibility depends on whether it will increase efficiency and mobility of transportation by reducing congestion on roads and highways with a daily traffic value of 10,000 per day. Other criteria includes whether the improvements will create great-

er access to remote areas, if they contribute to a cleaner environment and if they improve the life of an existing asset. During the April 22 RM of Corman Park council meeting, administration put forward a list of infrastructure projects that could benefit from the program – including paving 1.5 miles of Beam Road from the entrance of Bizhub towards Highway 684. That project is estimated to cost $2.3 million. Other notable projects that could receive funding include: • paving 3.5 miles of Baker Road from Highway 11 to Highway 219, which would be cost shared with Hamlets for a total cost of $3 million • a public works shop and water tank fill station for a cost of $2 million • construction and paving of Auction Mart Road three miles west of Highway 684 at a cost of $3.2 million All highway projects that qualify will receive 50 per cent while all other projects that qualify will receive 33 per cent of the funding.

“The big challenge is making sure they can use some equipment and use it safely. We cover that pretty thoroughly,” he explained, noting that he inspects all the work done by students and coaches them along the way. “We’ve had a few do-overs but it’s all part of the learning process.” Paul Merriman, representing Sask. Housing Minister June Draude, said a house is more than four walls and a roof.

“A house is where family and friends share memories and build dreams together,” Merriman stated. “However, we know that the cost associated with new buildings and homes has increased greatly over the years, so it’s wonderful that this partnershipcan help working families achieve their dream of owning their own homes.” Merriman pointed out the province committed an extra $750,000 in its 2014-15 budget through the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation to help build an additional 12 new Habitat For Humanity homes

throughout Saskatchewan. “This brings the government’s commitment to Habitat For Humanity to a total of $7.85 million since March 2009,” Merriman added, noting the funding for each individual unit has been raised from $50,000 to $65,000. Each family that qualifies for a Habitat For Humanity home contributes 500 hours of labour toward the project. Saskatoon Mayor Don Atchison said his city has invested over $20 million into attainable housing, generating $400 million worth of construction.

Olser’s Valley Christian Academy hosted 64 students from four school districts competing in the Saskatchewan High Schools Athletic Associations Regional Badminton Playoffs, Saturday, May 3. The regional badminton playoff structure is usually broken down into four tournaments, played at various schools. Each tournament will produce 16 qualifiers to compete in the SHSAA Badminton Provincials, which are going to be hosted by Warman High School this weekend. Each tournament features boys and girls singles, boys and girls doubles and mixed doubles. This is the first time VCA has hosted a regional tournament. All together 60 round robin games and 10 playoff games were played at VCA on Saturday. VCA was represented by a boys double team of Justin Las-

kowski and Jared Reddekopp, who finished third in their pool, but did not make it to the provincials Syd Laskowski, principal of VCA and organizer for the tournament, said the team ran into some stiff competition. “Their goal was to make it to provincials so they were disappointed but at the same time they realized that this is the next level of competition,” said Laskowski. “They commented afterward that you don’t win by the other team making mistakes, you win by making great shots.” Laskowski said VCA was

Last year VCA had an athlete receive a silver medal at regionals in a boys singles event, but Laskowski, who has been coaching badminton at VCA for 15 years, says competition is always pretty tough.

Legends Golf Club kicks off season on a chilly note By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Ray McLean of Warman was looking forward to the new golf season as he sipped a cup of hot coffee inside the pro shop at the Legends Golf Club on Saturday morning, May 3. He just wasn’t looking forward to freezing his fingers, and some other body parts, during his first round. “Man, it’s cold out there,” he said. “Another guy was supposed to golf with me today but I don’t think he’s going to show up.” The temperature was hovering around minus 2 degrees, but the wind chill out at the first tee box was wicked enough to bring tears to the eyes. Eventually, though, the thermometer climbed to the zero mark and the course opened for business. McLean, dressed for the occasion in a toque and winter vest, was the first off the mark, but there was a solid parade of golfers out on the links over the course of the weekend. Legends Golf Club Manager Jody Dueck said the phone was ringing off the hook prior to opening day. “Now that the snow has finally disappeared, people are finally getting the itch,” said Dueck in an interview on Thursday, May 1. “The course wiintered really well considering we didn’t have as much snow cover as usual. The greens are a little wet right now but it shouldn’t be a problem by the weekend.” Dueck said the golf club membership is sitting at about 200 right now, but he expects that to rise to about 250 once the season gets going. A full complement of staff members are on the job, the golf carts are tuned up and ready to go, and the club‘s pro shop and restaurant are gearing up for the summer. “Everyone is excited to get the season started,” said Dueck. The club is hosting its regular Ladies Night on Tuesdays and Men’s Night on Wednesdays. Both are popular, according to Dueck. “Usually we have the call the week before for people to sign up,” he said. The club is offering lessons for juniors and adults this season. “Believe it or not, the lessons actually can help you im-

Ray McLean of Warman addresses his ball while braving a wicked windchill on the first tee at the Legends on May 3 prove your golf game,” said Dueck. “We can show you how to correct those bad habits.” The junior golf lessons are expanding this year with the addition of a special “Snag” golf program. “Basically it’s aimed at kids from 5 years old and up,” said Dueck. “They use oversize plastic golf clubs and hit tennis balls. There are other training aids as well. It’s a fun way to get kids out on the course so they can learn the basics of golf without actually hitting with a normal club.” The Legends is hosting the provincial Mid-Amateur golf tournament August 19-21. “This tournament will feature the best mid-amateurs in the province,” said Dueck. “Mid-amateur is 35 and over.” The club’s regular tournaments include a two-person scramble May 31 and June 1; a Member-Guest fun scramble on May 10; regular club championships at the end of the season; and the much-anticipated annual “Wyder Cup” event. “As soon as we put the registration out for the Wyder

Cup, it fills up right away,” said Dueck. “It’s open to 60 golfers. I’ll be leading one team, and since Craig Prentice left the club, the new assistant pros will have to fight for the honour of being captain of the other team.” The pro shop is blowing out some bargain equipment and clothing, according to Turner Hamm and Nick Korchinski, who started work at the club for the season on May 1. Hamm, a graduate of Warman High School now enrolled in his first year of classes at the Edwards School of Business at the University of Saskathcewan, said he’s looking forward to once again spending his summer working at the club. He’s been a seasonal employee ever since the club opened. Korchinski is in his fourth year of university, and is also studying at the Edwards School of Business. It’s his first season at the Legends. He says he’s golfed the Willows course in Saskatoon quite a bit, but is looking forward to taking on the challenges of the Legends.

Merchants kick off season with nail biter victory over Padres

Provincial badminton championships slated for Warman High School By TERRY PUGH

james@ccgazette.ca

The Hanley Merchants kicked of their 2014 Saskatoon Amateur Softball Association season with a 13-12 nail biter over the Saskatoon Points Athabasca Padres at Gordie Howe Park, May 4. The Merchants are defending league champions and were runners up in the 2013 provincials, losing to the Warman Gems. Derek Lebke, who is one of the player reps and center fielder for the Merchants, said opposing teams who play against them can expect tough matchups. “We should be very competitive this year,” said Lebke. “Our strengths will be our pitching and defense.” The Merchants added second baseman Monty Zbunich and two right fielders in Andrew Kroeger and Carter Block. The Merchants were stingy in the first three innings allowing only three hits for the Padres on some heat seekers thrown by starting pitcher Rob Goring. The Merchants also drove in four runs in the bottom of the first, and added another in the bottom of the second to take an early 5-1 lead. At the top of the fourth inning, Goring was relieved by Jason Johnson, who got into trouble by allowing the Padres back into the game with three runs on two hits. With the score 5-3, the Merchants increased their lead by three at the bottom of the fourth inning, but the Padres were not going to go down without a fight. At the top of the fifth the Padres scored two runs to keep the game close, but saved their best for the sixth inning when the Padres, with bases loaded scored six runs on two hits, which gave them the lead for the first time in the game.

The best high school badminton players in the province will be in Warman this weekend to compete for several provincial titles. Warman High School (WHS) is hosting the provincial boys, and girls singles, doubles and mixed doubles Saskatchewan High Schools Athletic Association (SHSAA) badminton championships on Saturday, May 10. The athletes competing in the provincials earned the right to compete in this event after winning their regional events, according to Chris Dean, a teacher at WHS and commissioner of the provincial tournament. “It’s a great opportunity to see some very competitive games and a high level of athletic skill,” said Dean in an interview on Thursday, May 1. “Badminton is a very demanding game. “In some ways it’s like tennis, but with a little more speed and finesse. At the same time, you don’t require as much muscular power. Badminton is also intense because it’s played in close quarters.” Four SHSAA regional badminton competitions were held last Saturday, May 3. Valley Christian Academy (VCA) in Osler hosted the Region D competition, which included the Central Valley Athletic Conference, Saskatoon conference, Battle West and North West conferences. Teams at the regional tournament represented Hepburn, Osler, Rosthern, Saskatoon, Blaine Lake, Wilkie, Loon Lake,, Pierceland, Spiritwood, Medstead, Rossignol, St. Walburg, Edam, Perdue, Hillmond and Pelican Lake. The categories of competition

in district, regional and provincial badminton competition include boys singles, boys doubles, girls singles, girls doubles and mixed doubles. While no students from WHS made it to the regional competition, Dean said the region will be well-represented at the provincial competition. He noted that at the district competition before Easter, Josh Thomas of Rosthern High School played with an injury and still made it to the regional event in boys singles. “During the district championships in Delisle, Josh basically played on one leg,” said Dean. “He was standing at centre court during the instructions prior to the start and he was using a crutch to support himself. During the games he was limping badly but he still advanced. “This was primarily due to his superior shot production and placement. He is a highlyskilled player who hopes to advance to play in Warman.”

BADMINTON POPULAR

Dean said badminton is an inclusive sport that allows schools of all sizes to participate in. “Most schools will field a team,” he said. “As to how

many students try out for the team, there’s not as huge a demand as there is for other sports like volleyball, basketball or football, but it’s definitely a sport that has an appeal for many students.” Dean said the maximum number of athletes on a school badminton team is 16, based on the five categories available. “With our student population here at WHS, we had about 30 kids try out for the team,” said Dean. “Some schools with smaller student populations might be more hard-pressed to field a full team.” Dean said badminton is an Olympic sport that can be played at a very high level. High-performance coaches have provided clinics to high schools in the sport over the season. The game is similar to tennis in that a set consists of a bestof-three series of games. The games are generally played to 21, although in some instances they could go just to 15. In the event of a tie, the winner has to be decided by two points, and the game closes at 30. The provincial tournament is open to the public. The action starts at 10:00 a.m., with the final medal presentations wrapping up about 5:00 p.m.

Blades acquire Forsberg The Saskatoon Blades have made a splash at the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft, being extremely pleased to announce the acquisition of Waldheim’s Alex Forsberg from the Prince George Cougars. In exchange for the 1995-born forward, the Blades have dealt prospect and former 12th round pick Haydn Hopkins, along with a conditional 3rd round

draft pick to the Cougars. Forsberg is coming off of his third WHL season with Prince George. He was selected first overall in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft by the Cougars. Overall in his WHL career, Forsberg has put up 30 goals, 87 points and 78 PIMs in 131 regular season games. He’s also added a goal in three career postseason games.

WHL teams select four local players in 2014 Bantam Draft

PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENTION TO AMEND THE ZONING BYLAW

By JAMES TARRANT james@ccgazette.ca

Bantam hockey players from Saskatoon and surrounding areas made a strong impression on scouts in the 2014 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft. The WHL selected four players from the Sask Valley Vipers with forward Chance Adrian of Dalmeny getting scooped up 142 overall by the Red Deer Rebels, defenceman Austin Wieler 138 by the Kootenay Ice, defenceman Austin Shumanski 212 by the Spokane Chiefs and goaltender Joel Grzybowski 223 by the Saskatoon Blades. The four talented hockey players were the reason why the Vipers had such a strong season in 2014 earning 22 wins, five losses and two ties and a strong finish in the playoffs by reaching the Saskatchewan AA Bantam Hockey League Northern Division Final, said head coach Shaun Priel. “I am a facilitator in their growth to help them as hockey players,” said Priel. “I hope every kid gets listed and drafted from teams I have coached because I want to see every kid succeed and to have those opportunities in a game they love playing.” Priel said Adrian was a leader on and off the ice. “There were many times throughout the year that this kid took the team on its shoulders, went out and got the job done for us in terms of winning games,” he said. Adrian was second in team scoring for the Vipers with 18 goals and 23 assists for 41 points in regular season play. Randy Peterson, director or scouting and player development with the Red Deer Rebels, said that Adrian’s style of game fits in well with the Reb-

Public Notice is hereby given, pursuant to Section 44(d) of The Saskatchewan Watershed Authority Act, 2005 that the Council of the Resort Village of Shields intends to adopt a bylaw to amend Bylaw #1/2009, known as the Zoning Bylaw.

REVISED

The Sask Valley Vipers Chance Adrian, Austin Shumanski, Austin Weiler and Joel Grzybowski were all selected in the 2014 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft els. “He plays a heavy game, has a nose for the net and a heavy accurate shot with some precision that we have seen as well,” said Peterson. “He is a smart play maker and makes others around him play better as well.” Adrian said there were nine teams in the WHL interested in him including the Tri-City Americans, the Seattle Thunderbirds, the Spokane Chiefs, the Saskatoon Blades, Regina Pats, Swift Current Broncos, Brandon Wheat Kings and the Prince Albert Raiders. “I am really happy getting drafted by Red Deer because the Sutters (a famous hockey family from Viking, Alberta) are there and they run a great program,” said Adrian. “If you are willing to work hard you are going to have success.” Colin Priestner, managing partner for the Saskatoon Blades, said Grzybowski’s athleticm in net is what caught their eye. “He is a very athletic goaltender, a great kid, focused and very fast in net,” said Priestner. “ He’s a little on the small

R.M. OF BLUCHER NO. 343 PUBLIC NOTICE Public notice is hereby given that the R.M. of Blucher No. 343 is considering a bylaw under The Planning and Development Act, 2007 to amend Bylaw No. 4-2001, known as the Zoning Bylaw. INTENT The proposed Bylaw will rezone the lands described below: 1) The zoning District Map, which forms part of Bylaw 4-2001 shall be amended by rezoning from A-Agricultural District to ICR-Intensive Country Residential District PT NE 34-36-3 W3 as shown in the bold outline Zoning Detail No. 2 (m) which is attached to and forms part of this bylaw.

side, but if he can grow a bit we think he could be a very good goaltender.” Grzybowski said he was glad that he was picked by a local team, but he didn’t really have a perference. He is just glad to be selected. Priel said both Wieler and Shumanski were like a wall on defence for the Vipers. Weiler was the Vipers’ captain this season, who Priel described as a hard working defenceman. “I was happy that he was able to get drafted and go where he did,” said Priel. “He is not a flashy player. He just gets the job done. Sometimes those guys don’t always get noticed.” Shumanski had an interesting road to make the Vipers lineup. In the 2012/13 season he was cut from the team and played in North Battleford. This past season he tried out

for the Vipers, made the team and proved to be one of the best defencemen in the league and contributed every night with his skill and intimidating physical play, said Priel. Peterson said the unfortunate thing about the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft was there were not many players selected from southern areas of the province, which concerns him. He said most of the players were selected from Saskatoon and surrounding areas, which is a trend he wants to see continue. “Saskatoon and area have turned out a number of great picks over the years,” said Peterson. “I think the kids in the Warman and Martensville area are getting good coaching and it seems to be common year after year. They are doing something right,” he said.

SREDA’s Regional Housing Study Phase 1 SREDA’s Regional Committee requested McNair Business Development Inc. to help them develop a ten-year housing forecast in 2013. The committee requested a comprehensive housing needs/demand assessment for all segments of the housing continuum (seniors, students, income assisted, market housing, etc.) so they can plan effectively. Twenty towns, villages and rural municipalities in the SREDA Region participated in the online housing survey and/or consultations with the McNair consultant team during Fall 2013. The survey and consultations involved municipal growth, capacity and readiness, planning, development, infrastructure, housing, and local amenities and services. The SREDA Region, which excludes Saskatoon, will continue to experience robust growth over the next ten years. According to the McNair Economic Model, by 2023 there will be another 18,961 people living in the region. This represents a 40 percent jump in population. Approximately 40 percent of the new people coming to the region, or about 7,400, will settle on acreages in rural municipalities. The level of demand for acreages varies by rural municipality. The other 60 percent, or about 11,200, will move into the region’s two cities, towns and villages. While the rural and urban municipalities will attract new residents, 76 percent of these residents will elect to reside in the top ten growth list. The total regional housing demand is driven by population growth, which is broken down into the four housing continuum categories (social, affordable, entry level and market). The medium growth scenario, forecasted by the McNair Economic Model, indicates the SREDA Region will need 5,793 new housing units by 2023. “Housing units” includes both for

purchase and for rental, including multiunit housing and single-family homes.

Top Ten Growth List

According to the online survey, the most difficult issue in the SREDA Region, and the same is true provincially, is the lack of affordable rentals and houses for sale. Many municipalities have also identified there is an expanding need for more seniors housing, which is understandable given the aging of the baby boom generation. By 2023 the McNair Economic Model projects a 45 percent boost in the number of seniors 65 or older in the region—an increase of 2,903 seniors. An expanding need for more seniors housing has been identified as a priority target in many municipalities of the region. The high demand for market priced housing is due to the fact that most of the migration into the region will be into relatively well paying jobs in mining, construction and manufacturing. However, low paying service sector jobs will also be created, and a larger population also means a larger number of people dependent on social programs. Therefore SREDA has indicated Seniors Housing and the Rental Market along with Affordable Market Housing as priority targets in the region.

Dalmeny Community Needs Pilot Project A community needs assessment is a tool to collect important data on household shopping patterns, employment locations, shopping preferences and average annual spending in the community’s immediate trade area. Community needs assessment information is gathered through a survey mechanism to help municipal councils make more informed decisions on future planning and business development activities. The Town of Dalmeny participated in SREDA’s Community Needs Assessment pilot project in 2013. Key findings from the survey respondents and project results included: • Out of 640 possible survey responses, 130 surveys were completed (86 online, 44

in-person paper surveys) for a 20.3 percent overall survey response rate. • Average number of people residing in households was 3.5 people. • 69.11 percent of survey respondents are employed in Saskatoon. • 97.64 percent of survey respondents indicated that they would shop local if they had access to the shopping options their household was looking for. • The top 5 business categories survey respondents listed in order of importance for Dalmeny were: fuel, grocery, restaurant, pharmacy and hardware. Of these responses, survey respondents indicated that the lack of a gas station caused them to have to purchase fuel outside of their community. • Additional feedback most identified by survey respondents with regard to specific businesses/business categories they would like to see in Dalmeny included: 31 responses (42%) would like to see a gas station, 24 responses (32 percent) would like to see either licensed dining, a lounge or liquor vendor and 16 responses (21 percent) would like to see

another dining option (bistro, family dining or fast food). • Project recommendations based on data collected include: attracting a gas station/convenience store, working with their existing business base to help expand where applicable and attracting complimentary businesses to enhance Dalmeny’s local economy. Dalmeny Town Council is currently undertaking Step II of their project by working directly with Jensen Consulting Group to implement project recommendations. To date, Dalmeny has implemented a new business bylaw, economic development incentives, business development guide, upgraded business information on the community’s website and is currently finalizing their business visitation program.

Regional Planning for Growth The purpose of the Saskatoon Regional Growth Summit led by SREDA in November 2013 was to bring together regional participants to consider and discuss the opportunities to shape and define the future of the Saskatoon Region from a cooperative value added base for sustained, orderly and collective economic growth and prosperity. The Summit fulfilled and achieved its espoused mandate to engage the regional participants, increase awareness and understanding, identify the critical issues, principles and opportunities and mostly to determine collective interest in pursuing this objective with an active agenda. With over 250 in attendance it was the intent of the organizers to gauge and build a base foundation of understanding and flag the critical

principles and framework for a regional plan and planning body. This was achieved with strong resolve and order of magnitude consensus. All the right factors are aligning in the Saskatoon region—there is substantial projected growth, momentum is positive, and interest is high. Building on the momentum created from best practices and lessons learned at the Summit, SREDA feels it is imperative to continue moving the regional planning initiative forward. SREDA believes in the tremendous potential of the Saskatoon Region and is committed to translating that potential into reality by working together with the municipalities in the Saskatoon Region towards community readiness for growth and inter-municipal communication and collaboration.
